LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Virginia Wesleyan’s Hanna Hull and Calvin College’s Grace Stock captured this week’s Louisville Slugger/NFCA Division III National Pitcher and Player of the Week honors, respectively.

Sophomore left-hander Hull had another terrific week to collect her third weekly honor of the season and sixth of her career. The reigning Schutt Sports/NFCA Division III National Player of the Year went 5-0 with a save over four days and 26.1 innings, allowing just 15 hits, zero earned runs and one walk, while fanning 42 batters. The Clover Hill High graduate is now 17-0 this season for the unbeaten defending national champion (26-0) Marlins, with a 0.53 earned-run average, 166 strikeouts (11.03 per game) and just 21 walks and eight earned runs over 105.1 innings.

Freshman catcher Stock, meanwhile, is riding a six-game hit streak, the last four of which she has hit .909 (10-for-11) with five extra-base hits and 10 runs batted in. The Vicksburg, Mich., native threw out the one runner attempting to steal against her and collected 22 putouts and three assists in a perfect week behind the plate for the (15-2) Knights, who made their debut in the NFCA Top 25 poll earlier today in a tie at No. 20 with Babson.
